TOPIC: Widespread Protests - US
#199033

Widespread Protests - US 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
From New Orleans to Las Vegas; Washington
to Atlanta - civil unrest gains momentum, after the death of a Minneapolis man.

A police officer has been charged with murder - and the alleged crime has galvanised anti-establishment sentiment nationwide.

Timing couldn't be worse for Trump with his Capitol Hill problems - as well as those relating to China, the virus and the economy.


Making reelection distinctly uncertain - with the mature Democratic candidate consistently scoring points, in the background

And strategically pouncing on every Trump error and imprudent utterances - helped by the growing dissatisfaction, generated for so many reasons.

They need to take these riots very seriously and Trump is a real fool ..not sure whether he's intentionally inflaming the matter or just being his usual stupid.

Example: I was acquainted with a bunch of UK hoteliers who had invested £Multi-Millions in property in downtown Los Angeles with a view to long term developments.

When the Rodney King / LA riots erupted in 1992 their property holdings were in the middle of much of the action..these were old warehouses, shops, apartment blocks etc.

They lost so much money as the property prices in the area plummeted and any plans to re-develop were ditched..banks refused to even contemplate loans and so on. I believe it took them around 25 years to extricate themselves and their money.

There are probably 1000s of stories like this that go unreported as we see shops looted and burnt and probably have no idea of the dozens of stories of financial heartbreak that may accompany the riots.

and then there's the insurance ! Which we all end up paying..

I was there. Lost a lot of money a friend of mine lost way more. These are not protests these are riots. There are probably some peaceful demonstrators, there's looters and arsonists about.

They are only destroying their area and, friends and neighbours.

Atlanta is beautiful it be shame if it was burned to the ground.

Since this has happened social distancing has gone away.
